In true Kim Kardashian fashion, the reality star has something to say. The latest topic of conversation? Her big sister's relationship. 

The SKIMS creator visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show on September 16, 2021 in her first interview since Keeping Up With the Kardashians came to a close earlier this year. She took the time to discuss her kids—Psalm's gold chain, North's desire to be an only child—but naturally, Ellen couldn't wait for details on Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's passionate, PDA-filled romance. 

"They are at each other like it's the last time they're going to see each other, all the time," DeGeneres said. 

This, of course, is evidenced by many a steamy Instagram photo. From romantic Italian getaways to makeout sessions at the recording studio, the Blink-182 drummer and Poosh founder are certainly not shy about showing their affection for one another. The friends-to-lovers relationship took off quickly, and everyone watched a few NSFW moments unfold. (You might recall that Scott Disick is a bit shaken by all of this PDA, and we can't say we blame him.)

What does Kim Kardashian think about Kourtney and Travis?

Even though the couple is packing on the PDA, Kim is giving her big sis a thumbs up to enjoy her romance. 

"I love their relationship," Kardashian revealed on the talk show. "They've grown so much together. Just to think that they've been neighbors, and friends for almost 15 years. Neighbors for like, a decade!"

She agreed that the public make-outs and declaration of love are "a lot" but thinks it's who they are as a couple. 

"You know what? That's what they do, and it's so cute. And I love love, so I love them," she added. 

We're bound to see more sultry shots in the future, that's for sure!
